Sciatica Treatment in Westleigh

Woman holding lower back in painSciatica refers to pain that starts in the low back and radiates down one or both legs. Trauma or various health conditions can cause it. It typically worsens with periods of sitting or standing. This type of discomfort often affects pregnant women, those with diabetes, and people who are obese.

Common Symptoms

Those with sciatica often experience the following:

  • Hip pain
  • A tingling or burning feeling down the leg
  • Weakness, numbness, or a difficult time moving the leg or foot
  • Continual discomfort that affects one side of the buttocks
  • A shooting pain that makes it uncomfortable to stand up

Our Natural Approach

At Westleigh Chiropractic, our focus isn’t on treating symptoms, but promoting overall wellness. Chiropractic adjustments may help alleviate sciatic discomfort. Not only will we seek to address pain now, but also create a plan to help prevent it from returning.

Before we provide care to improve joint motion in the lower back, the first step is a consultation and comprehensive examination. We’ll let you know if we think you can benefit from our approach. If we believe another healthcare practitioner can better address your nerve pain, we’ll let you know that too.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you get sciatica?

Often, sciatica is the result of cumulative damage. Years of poor posture and being overweight can contribute to sciatica. Something can trigger an episode as simple as bending over to tie your shoes. Spinal deterioration is another culprit.

Is chiropractic a cure for sciatica?

No, our natural care isn’t a cure for anything. Only your body can do that. Chiropractic care helps your spine work optimally, reducing nerve irritation and restoring your body’s healing ability.

How much chiropractic care will be needed?

Most patients with nerve pain get good results after weeks or months of care. Naturally, this varies from person to person.
